NCAA tournament 2014 schedule: Friday's Pac-12 games

Can Arizona, UCLA and Stanford make it to the second weekend?

The Arizona Wildcats and UCLA Bruins are prohibitive favorites to make it to the Sweet 16. The Stanford Cardinal are definite favorites to win their first game, but then things get a little bit more difficult after that.

Arizona tips off their NCAA tournament against Weber State. This figures to be a decent but not too difficult challenge for the Wildcats, who are probably already preparing for a much more difficult battle against the winner of Gonzaga vs. Oklahoma State. UCLA also should be favored to take care of Tulsa, then probably will have to deal with the winner of VCU vs. Stephen F. Austin. Both have the advantage of playing in San Diego, where they will be favored to win their opening week brackets. Stanford draws a much tougher bracket. They will battle New Mexico in the first round before having to try and escape the St. Louis region against Kansas.
